Welcome back to Minecraft Theory, where we do deep dives into anything and everything Minecraft! Honestly Theorists, there is SO MUCH to explore in this game. In my search for theory fodder on Creepers, Endermen, and all other manner of creatures, one thing stood out. The Illagers. You know, the exiled magic folk who seem to be up to some rather... interesting experiments. What are they doing and how might it change Minecraft FOREVER if they succeed in their plot? Let's find out!

    Noo way I just thought of something so since the evokores made zombies then that's why the builders died out or turned into enderman beacuse the illagers made monsters but hey! That's just a theory !my theory!

    Look at "Hi im Gib's" Comment because I agree with him. I would want to add onto that because maybe after they created the player character, it escaped and ran out into the overworld? And maybe after we took control we came back to the woodland mansion to punish their reckless magic.

    "Log number 38: *_Our precious creation ended up betraying us. He ran away, he looked like a zombie but this one was special. His skin was different, it was almost a different creature but we still don't know for sure. We might have to increase security, search for it, fetch it. He can't escape. I will not allow it._* End log 38".

  73. Joey Woey

    Joey WoeyKun oldin

    While its very unorthodox, there may be some reasoning as to how thousands of separate villages form an interconnected society, in the unofficial minecraft Novel series, Gameknight999, by Mark Cheverton, its states that the leaders of each village possess the ability to communicate with every other leader villager of every other village. Implying that even the base of the Illagers, the villagers, may possess a slight magical property, that the illagers took advantage of.

    You know what odd the only three mods the evokers, vindicator, and pillagers attack are iron golems, villages, and the player, they don't attack the undead or peaceful mobs but what even odd is they instant attack without a doubt they attack, another thing is, why, if there not many of them why do they instant attack you and relentlessly attack you? Think about that Matpat

  82. Aidcrazy Sol

    Aidcrazy SolKun oldin

    A couple more things is, do they attack enderman? You said they were trying to make you, what if they succeeded and it had disasters affects, and that why they attack? Because they afraid? Sacred? Try to end something? Cover something up(heroine?or maybe they helped make the wither? And maybe killing off the race, too make sure it never happens again or stop word of there involvement?)? What do you make of this?
